Sao Paulo, April 5 (IANS) Uruguayan goalkeeper Martin Silva led his team Vasco da Gama to a goalless draw in an away game against Cruzeiro in Group E of the Copa Libertadores.

The 35-year-old goalkeeper made several key saves during the match on Wednesday, the result of which now leaves both the Brazilian teams without a single win in the tournament, reports Efe.

The only jarring note in an otherwise placid match - during which the teams played safe and banked on their opponent's mistakes - was the injury of Paulinho, a 17-year-old already on the radar of top European clubs, who had to be taken out on a stretcher after he badly hurt his left elbow in a fall.

The current results leave Racing and Universidad de Chile at the top of Group E, each with four points.
